Add ContactMonkey to the Safe Senders List

What does this do?

By adding ContactMonkey to your safe senders list, you and your team benefit in two ways. Firstly, your recipients are able to immediately see the HTML code that is your campaign, without clicking " Download Image" for each image. Secondly, you as the sender are able to see accurate analytics for opens and clicks. 

Your IT team will need to use a custom group template to deploy a safe senders list, and then add ContactMonkey to the list.
